The Lyrics

Freshman year at Vanderbilt in 1964 it was History 101 with head lecturer Dr. Marchand, a brilliant man who suffered from a disease that misshaped his bones, similar to the diseased possessed by The Elephant Man. If a student was given any A or F by his individual instructor, the test or paper went to Dr. Marchand for review. He could, if he chose, change the grade to whatever he decided; for example, if he detected some plagiarism. History was in no way my best subject, by the way!
Thursday mornin' at nine o'clock, I know where I'm gonna be;
I'm gonna take a seat in the Auditorium Neely.
And all my friends will be there, too, and Marchand's lecture they will
hear,
Unless one happens to be a fortunate engineer.

(chorus) Thursday mornin' at Neely, another lecture to bear,
But maybe I'll be lucky enough to fall asleep in my chair.

The tests they give they say are made to help you learn to think,
But all you know is that the guy who made 'em must be a fink.
So all night long you study hard, tryin' to get the dope.
Then the questions come to you and you see that you have no hope.

(chorus)

The tests they give are really tough and nobody makes an A,
And if he does the Doctor sees that he doesn't get it anyway.
So if you come to Vanderbilt, you know it won't be much fun,
When you see you have to take that History 101.

(chorus)
